Pam, I've run into MANY situations in which the institution has to rank, or
choose a limited number to support.

This is what deans and VP's get paid to do!!  We in OSP offices need to be
able to set up selection groups rapidly.  Choose the selectors based on the
appropriate level at which the choice must be made -- e.g., the dean's
office if all candidates are in the school, a group of deans  offices or a
Provost/VP is candidates are between schools.  I find that deans have
learned to work together and the higher authority is not needed unles the
deans themselves perceive a need for it.  If you have good relations with
the people you want as judges, set it up yourself; otherwise draft a memo
for your boss (or higher) to sign setting up the selection group.
